Since its construction in 1911, Pennsylvania Station has served as the primary transportation hub for Baltimore. The station is the eighth busiest in the country, with more than three million Amtrak and MARC passengers moving through each year. Immediately surrounding the historic station is a collection of underutilized and vacant Amtrak-owned properties, currently being reimagined as a mixed-use, transit-oriented development with up to one million square feet of new office, retail, residential, and hotel uses.
Amtrak has selected Penn Station Partners (“PSP”) to redevelop Baltimore Penn Station and the neighboring Amtrak-related properties. Led by the development team of Beatty and Cross Street Partners, PSP has put forth an ambitious conceptual master plan, anchored by the preservation and adaptive reuse of the historic station and paired with a new, state-of-the-art station expansion to accommodate ongoing passenger growth.
